HLS 301 – Critical Infrastructure Protection


Buy paper about this assignment here (Email us: writersestate@gmail.com)

Effects of Decaying Infrastructure on
U.S. Critical Infrastructure Protection and Resilience

Critical Thinking Position Paper One – GUIDELINES
HLS 301 – Critical Infrastructure Protection

Synopsis / Objective:

The protection of the United States’ critical infrastructure is vital to daily life for each and every American.   The disruption of the nation’s critical infrastructure would have devastating impacts due to high level of connectedness at all levels of society.   However, when most consider possible threats for these disruptions, situations such as terrorism and natural disasters are the most commonly identified.  While these threats are important and should be safeguarded against, the decaying of American infrastructure is often overlooked when considering protection.   The following position paper will allow students to think critically about the relationship between decaying infrastructure and infrastructure protection and resilience.   Students will assume the role of a state homeland security director and write a letter to the congressional representative of their choice.   In doing so, students should define their position on this issue by utilizing the critical thinking elements of thought: (http://www.criticalthinking.org/ctmodel/logic-model1.htm).   Additional details regarding this deliverable are presented below.

  1. Deliverable Title: Effects of Decaying Infrastructure – Position Paper One (PP1)
  2. Deliverable Due Dates:
Deliverable: Due Date: Instructions:
PP1 – Peer Assessment Version See Syllabus / Schedule One Hard Copy to Class / One Electronic Copy to Blackboard

PP1 – Professor Provides Feedback / Assessment See Syllabus / Schedule Feedback / Assessment Provided
PP1 – Final Version See Syllabus / Schedule Submit via Blackboard

 

  1. Submission Format:                    

See chart above – some deliverables will require hard copy submissions while others will require electronic submissions via Blackboard and others both submission formats.

 

  1. Page Requirement:             Minimum of four pages, which does not include title or

                                                      reference pages

 

  1. Deliverable Instructions:

 

Students will develop a business/professional letter for position paper one (PP1).   A position paper presents an informed position about an issue.  The goal is to convince the audience that the position is valid and worth listening to.  It is important that students validate their position with evidence to ensure the validity of the claims.

For this paper, students will assume the role of a state homeland security director and write a letter to the congressional representative of their choice.   The issue at hand is whether decaying critical infrastructure should be a concern for homeland security practitioners.   While developing this position paper, the critical thinking elements of thought must be incorporated into the narrative (body) of the letter.  Students should provide a plan of action that supports either position that they take: A) decaying infrastructure is a homeland security issue that should be addressed by homeland security officials or B) decaying infrastructure is not a homeland security issue and should be taken care of by other agencies.   *Please Note* – a suggested format for the body of the paper as well as a simple outline for the parts of a basic business letter are presented below.

As previously noted, there will be three versions of the deliverable (peer, second and final), following a” writing across the disciplines” approach.  This approach allows students to understand where discrepancies may exist and then remedy those discrepancies over an extended period of time.  This is in contrast to the traditional method of an instructor grading and providing feedback on an assignment and most students quickly reviewing it and discarding it following review.   Overall, the writing across the disciplines approach has been proven to further refine student writing skills.

The first version (Peer Assessment Version) will allow students to trade their papers with another student in the course and provide constructive feedback to each other prior to the professor reviewing the paper.  For this first deliverable, students will bring a hard copy of their paper to class for their peer and submit an electronic copy to Blackboard™.    One week later, students will bring two copies of the feedback with them to class (hard copy), one for the professor and one for the student.  As will be outlined below, this deliverable will be worth 25 points but the deliverable graded will be the actual feedback that the student gives to their peer.

Next, students will remedy deficiencies identified by their peers and submit the second version to the professor via Blackboard and a printed submission.   This will be the first time the professor reviews the assignment.  The professor will take approximately two weeks to provide feedback on the paper as well as assign a score (up to 25 points).   This will give the student adequate feedback upon which to develop their third and final deliverable, the final version.   The final version will also be uploaded to Blackboard in a Microsoft Word™ document and a printed copy will be submitted in class.  The final version is worth 50 points of the overall grade.

position_paper.docx 6/2/2014 How to Write a Position Paper The purpose of a position paper is to generate support on an issue. It describes a position on an issue and the rational for that position. The position paper is based on facts that provide a solid foundation for your argument. 1 In the position paper you should: • Use evidence to support your position, such as statistical evidence or dates and events. • Validate your position with authoritative references or primary source quotations. • Examine the strengths and weaknesses of your position. • Evaluate possible solutions and suggest courses of action. Choose an issue where there is a clear division of opinion and which is arguable with facts and inductive reasoning. You may choose an issue on which you have already formed an opinion. However, in writing about this issue you must examine your opinion of the issue critically.2 Prior to writing your position paper, define and limit your issue carefully. Social issues are complex with multiple solutions. Narrow the topic of your position paper to something that is manageable. Research your issue thoroughly, consulting experts and obtaining primary documents. Consider feasibility, cost-effectiveness and political/social climate when evaluating possible solutions and courses of action. 3 The following structure is typical of a position paper: • An introduction • Identification of the issue • Statement of the position • The body • Background information • Supporting evidence or facts • A discussion of both sides of the issue • A conclusion • Suggested courses of action • Possible solutions The introduction should clearly identify the issue and state the author’s position. It should be written in a way that catches the reader’s attention. The body of the position paper may contain several paragraphs. Each paragraph should present an idea or main concept that clarifies a portion of the position statement and is supported by evidence or facts. Evidence can be primary source quotations, statistical data, interviews with experts, and indisputable dates or events. Evidence should lead, through inductive reasoning, to the main concept or idea presented in the paragraph. The body may begin with some background information and should incorporate a discussion of both sides of the issue. The conclusion should summarize the main concepts and ideas and reinforce, without repeating, the introduction or body of the paper. It could include suggested courses of action and possible solutions. 4 1 Tucker, Kerry, & Derelian, Doris, Rouner, Donna. (1997).

The American Dream Feature Story ASSIGNMENT REQUIREMENTS


Buy paper about this assignment here (Email us: writersestate@gmail.com)

Please read and follow the instruction carefully! Thank you~

The American Dream Feature Story ASSIGNMENT REQUIREMENTS

 

  • Write a news feature story on the state of the American Dream at least 1200 words base on seven to ten interviews and online research
. Please read this whole document carefully! Each paragraph should not exceed 40 words (write at least 30 paragraphs). The lead should not exceed 35 words.
  • **Important Requirement: At the end of your story, please list the names and contact information for all of your interviewees. Be sure before the interview that your interviewees are willing to provide this information. Failure to include this information will result in a ten-point deduction.
  • Your central task is to combine interviews with research and take stock of the American Dream. What your interviewees share with you—their experiences, their views and their hopes—will form your story’s core.
  • This is not an academic paper, but rather a current portrait of how people feel about the American Dream and, by extension, how the country is doing and likely to fare. That will be your focus.
  • Your first step is to conduct a bit of online research. That will provide the foundation and background for the story. Next step is to talk to a good cross-section of people about the American Dream.
  • Don’t make this a story that dwells on what happened, but rather on the current situation and how people view the future. Your reporting, however, should include research on the American Dream and the economy. Several news reports and studies have been posted. They provide excellent background and may even be cited, but sparingly, please. Do not make the mistake of recycling the posted research into your story. You are expected to do your own digging.
  • Thus, take care to chat with professionals, blue-collar workers, students, old people.
  • Be mindful of not starting your story in classic academic fashion, with loads of data only to introduce your first interview subject after several paragraphs.
  • The most effective way to write this story is by organizing it thematically. Your research and interviews will unearth themes: The American Dream’s golden years, when anyone who worked hard would achieve it; the classic success stories; immigrants who came to these shores and struck it rich; those who left their homeland only to fall short of the dream; younger Americans with no realistic hope of acquiring the comfortable and secure middle class life their parents enjoyed.
  • Don’t make the basic mistake of presenting interview summaries in random fashion. That would produce a terribly disorganized story with no narrative thread.
  • IMPORTANT STORY NOTICE

As we know, the American Dream holds great meaning in the United States. Historically, it has been a firmly held belief that separates the United States from the rest of the world. Making the dream reality means a comfortable and secure middle class life, complete with home ownership, college educations paid for with family college funds, great vacations and a host of other perks. It has long been an article of faith that if you worked hard enough the American Dream could be yours. For many Millennials and even younger Americans the dream has become less about money and material possessions, and more about achieving personal and professional goals.

Yet today there is disturbing evidence that realizing any version of the dream has become impossible or at minimum a daunting task. This fundamental change is reflected in widespread voter disaffection.

Fairly recently, the Pew Research Center released a study showing conclusively that the middle class is shrinking. Many other studies and journalistic report shave reached the same conclusion.

What made the American Dream become elusive for so many? There is little question that the 2008 recession was the basic cause. It marked the bleakest time in American recent history since the Great Depression. The toll was reflected in the flood of mortgage defaults and the army of newly unemployed. Still others who managed to stay employed saw their household incomes plunge as spouses lost jobs. According to some analysts, the erosion of the American middle class began years before the recession. Officially, the recession is over. Mortgage defaults are down, as are unemployment rates. However, few would argue that the economy is truly robust. Indeed, there is plenty of evidence that full economic health has not been restored. A slightly dated Wall Street Journal story reflects that.

And so there is the accompanying conclusion that the American Dream is in danger of dying or, in fact, has already died.

A New York Times analysis (posted on the class site) finds that the American middle class is no longer the world’s wealthiest. Canada holds that coveted spot. The middle class in several other countries have seen their incomes increase considerably since 2000, while here at home it has stagnated.

Nonetheless, the United States remains the number one destination for immigrants. The promise of the American Dream for many of them is very much alive and still realized.

Has your interviewee suffered from the effects of the recession? If so, how? Is he or she doing well today? Does he or she feel optimistic, pessimistic or uncertain about the future?

Faisal, a software programmer at Company Z, was assigned the task of developing a software program that handles the access and retrieval of records from each Company’s database system into the other. A first run of the software on real data indicated that the work was well within the state of the art, and no difficulties were found or anticipated. Several weeks later and during a normal test on the software developed, Faisal discovered a serious ‘security hole’ in the database system of Company Y by which hackers can easily obtain confidential information about clients. He was convinced that while the software he developed could correctly accomplish the task, the code in Company Y’s database system could not be trusted as the security hole posed a threat even on Company X’s database system. Faisal told his manager about the problem and explained its significance. The manager’s response was, “That’s not our problem; let’s just be sure that our software functions properly.” Faisal is not sure what to do. Refusing to work on the project means disobeying his manager’s orders. Continuing to work on the project, means disobeying one of God’s commands, which requires him to be truthful and sincere in his dealings. Task 2.1.1 Identify and describe the key ethical concerns raised in this case study?

PSY-400: HISTORY AND SYSTEMS OF PSYCHOLOGY

 

Final Paper

 

OVERVIEW

For this final paper, your will explore the history of a theoretical concept or issue.

 

Theoretical Concept: A concept is an abstract idea generalized from particular instances. Psychology is basically a set of theoretical concepts. Each concept has a history.  For instance, Freud developed numerous concepts around the ‘unconscious mind’, while later behaviorists dismissed these in favor of more observable concepts such as ‘modeling’ and ‘reinforcements’.

 

Issue: Issues are debatable perspectives on some topic. Below are listed some of the major issues that have dominated the history of psychological thought since the times of the ancient Greek philosophers. For your final essay, you MIGHT choose to address one of these issues:

 

  • The nature of human nature
  • The relation between humans and nonhuman animals
  • The relationship between the mind and the body
  • The nature of mental illness
  • Rationalism versus irrationalism
  • Consciousness versus unconsciousness
  • Reductionism versus non-reductionism
  • Nature versus nurture
  • Objective versus subjective reality
  • Mechanism versus vitalism
  • Determinism versus freedom
  • The foundation of human happiness

 

The final paper assignment is designed to allow you to delve deeper into a historical period, influential person, theoretical movement, or psychological discipline that interests you. The term paper must focus on something or someone from the material covered in class. Acceptable papers may take many forms.

 

Some specific examples of acceptable papers structures are:

 

  • A compare and contrast paper presenting evidence for two different theoretical views (issues).
  • A compare and contrast paper that summarizes and critiques the work of two major figures in the history of psychology, (in terms of their theoretical concepts).
  • A position paper, where you take a position on a historical debate (issue) and present evidence supporting your position.
  • A paper that takes a historical person or theory (concepts) and investigates the impact on modern psychology.

 

[NOTE: You can use one of your three previous writing assignments as a starting point if you wish, but it isn’t required.]

 

CO 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 7

 

Papers are expected to be in APA style. All reference material should be acquired through your personal research. Acceptable references include, biographies/autobiographies, books or original research papers by historic researchers, peer-reviewed journal articles, review papers from scientific journals, historic textbooks, scholarly websites, and papers written by historians and philosophers of science. In general, unacceptable references include unsubstantiated viewpoints and encyclopedias, such as Wikipedia, although these might be used as a starting point to find more scholarly publications. A minimum of 5 scholarly references should be cited and listed.

 

Whichever issue, person, or concept becomes the subject of your final paper, you should make sure your essay includes the following: (a) an introduction in which you defined the topic and say why it is important; (b) a historical narrative that traces the history of the topic, the various positions taken on this question and/or the key figures that represent those positions; and (c) a conclusion in which you discuss the current status of the issue or concept in contemporary psychology.

 

Final papers are expected to be 10 to 15 pages (double spaced, 12pt Times New Roman font), excluding title page, abstract, references, figures, and appendices. Please see the Course Calendar for due dates.

 

GUIDELINES

  • Your paper should be 10 to 15 pages and should cover the directives already given.
  • You should follow accepted research approaches and citation format (APA).
  • Your paper should be well developed and convey your understanding of the readings and concepts.
  • Your paper should be organized, coherent, and unified.
  • Your paper should be free of spelling and grammatical errors.
  • Base your research paper on at least a dozen different research sources which must be listed in the concluding bibliography list.
  • Use an even mix of hardcopy and online sources because there is a definite qualitative difference between the two types.

Individual Assignment

The purpose of this assignment is to provide the students the opportunity to carry out the full scope of a Statistical Process Control procedure, on a real-world business process of their own choosing. The assignment, and the deliverable report, comprise the following parts.

Process: Describe a business and a business process you have chosen for this assignment. You can use ideas from the examples covered in class or the end-of-chapter problems. Be sure that you can gain thorough knowledge of the process and that you have access for data collection through observation or by taking measurements. [10 marks]

CTQ: Describe a critical-to-quality characteristic of the output of the process, which could be either a product or a service. Explain why such characteristic is critical, in your judgement. [10 marks]

SPC Type: Inform and justify your selection of an appropriate SPC type for controlling the CTQ of your choice. [10 marks]

Data: Collect appropriate sample data for the CTQ variable or attribute, as well as the sampling plan you have adopted.  Depict your data in a tabular form. [10 marks]

Analysis: Calculate SPC parameters, and construct the control chart(s) by plotting. Represent you sample data on the charts. [20 marks]

Conclusion: Discuss the control charts you have constructed and draw conclusions with respect to process stability. [10 marks]

Recommendations: Given the state of the process, which you have investigated, what improvement recommendations you can offer to the process owner or operator? Your analysis will be expected to apply critical thinking and understanding of the subject. [20 marks]

Style: Your report must be prepared per APA format, be concise, business-like, proof-read and to the point. Excluding cover sheet, your paper should be 3 pages. Additional penalties will apply for grammatical or spelling errors.  [10 marks]

For each variable answer the question is it categorical or numerical?
The dataset is based on survey questions   so propose 2 other survey questions

Section 3: Summary of the data set

  1. For the variable how much they would pay? below give graphical and numerical summaries that describes the variable
    (in other words give the appropriate univariate statistics and graphical displays)

Also provide give appropriate comments

  1. Use the filter to exclude the people that do not like the product and find appropriate numerical summaries for the follow variable
  2. *Variable which version they prefer
  3. *Variable How much they would pay?

Also provide suitable comments

 

  1. For each pair of variables below give appropriate graphical and numerical summaries that describes the variable

(in other words give the appropriate bivariate statistics and graphical displays)

 

i)The variables: Gender and do they like the product ?

ii)The variables How much they would pay?  and gender

 

 

Section 4: Confidence intervals

Note: you will have to use the information in section 3b to answer these questions.

Excluding people that do not like the product

i)Find a 90% confidence interval for the proportion of people that prefer version 1

ii)Find a 90% confidence interval for the average amount they would pay

Section 5: Hypothesis tests 

Note: use the information from question 3c to answer these questions

Perform the appropriate Hypothesis test,

  1. *The variables: Gender and do they like the product

  • *Variable which version they prefer
  1. *Variable How much they would pay?

 

Bi)

Row Labels Count of Which version is the best?
Neither 5
version 1 2O
version 2 25
Grand Total 5O

 

So proportion of neither =5/5O=O.1 ,

proportion of version 1 = 2O/5O=O.4,
proportion that like version3 = 25/5O=O.5
